Unlocking the Secrets of Your Telomeres to Live a Longer & Healthier Tomorrow with Dr. Elaine Chin of The Executive Health Centre

While we wait to one day be able to grow new healthy organs using our own stem cells, we must take care of our bodies today and live as ‘young’ as possible. Dr. Chin will share her expertise in Precision Medicine and prove to you that by slowing down the shortening of your telomeres, you can live a longer and healthier life. Telomeres are the genetic end tips of your chromosomes. They’re like the plastic tips on shoelaces because of the way they prevent chromosome ends from unraveling and sticking to each other. This can lead to premature cell death and health problems. Telomeres shorten naturally as we age but certain aging processes and other lifestyle stressors shorten them, even faster. There are ideal biomarkers levels that are critical to maintaining healthy telomeres. New technologies can allow us to do a number of these specialized precision medicine diagnostics using at-home testing kits. Dr. Chin will highlight her list of Top 10 Precision Medicine Tests you should consider to keep your telomeres as long as possible.
